I believe this is my 1st official from Croatia. It made me super happy to receive it.

HR-23387, sent by Annais.

Rijeka is the principal seaport and the third largest city in Croatia (after Zagreb and Split). It is located on Kvarner Bay, an inlet of the Adriatic Sea.
Historically, because of its strategic position and its excellent deep-water port, the city was fiercely contested, especially between Italy, Hungary, and Croatia, changing hands and demographics many times over centuries.

The city's economy largely depends on shipbuilding and maritime transport. Rijeka hosts the Croatian National Theatre, first built in 1765, as well as the University of Rijeka, founded in 1973 but with roots dating back to 1632. - in: wikipedia
